Review: Heroes, Joe Abercrombie

Rating: 5 out of 5

This must be the best of the four Abercrombie books I’ve read thus far.

The book is a thrilling look into a four-day long battle with a realistic description of combat and the participants thereof — added to which the author has added a number of very strong characters who embody the various types of people. Some of the characters – such as Craw and Tunny – are particularly interesting, both due to their truthful insights into the world as well as their attitude to events. [I would wholeheartedly say that Tunny deserves a book — or a series of books — of his own.] There is also considerably more humour in this book than in the First Law trilogy — perhaps unfittingly due to the monothematic nature concerned, and yet perhaps all the more fittingly.
